# How do I uninstall an Addon added by running a Python Script?

I tried to install the CreaPrim script and I ran the script 3 times due to confusion on my part, but the result is that now I have 3 CreaPrim sections in my Tools panel:

How can I get rid of 2 of them?

I don't think you can uninstall it as you didn't technically install it if you said you 'ran the script'. Best you can do is close and re-open file I think.

Edit:

I found that the script had also been added to my startup file without me having saved it. On windows I navigated to:

C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Blender Foundation\Blender\2.70\scripts\addons\__pycache__\


I deleted a file with object_creaprim in the file name and reloaded blender and it disappeared.

• Unfortunately, I seem to have unwittingly saved it to my startup file. Is there any way I can get rid of just 2 instances of the CreaPrim? My startup file has all my personalized settings and I don't want to have to delete it and then go through resetting ALL those many many settings I like. – Thom Blair III Apr 3 '14 at 15:31

It turns out that all I needed to do was to quit Blender and the scripts I'd run that made all 3 of those Create Primitive sections went away. I had been reloading my startup file, but that didn't get rid of them. Anyway, good to know.

Press F8

F8 is the default shortcut to the Reload Scripts operator, which as the name suggests will reload all scripts as if blender has just been re-started.
